Around the World in 80 Years

2 Jul

At the advanced ages of 78 and 89, Harry L. Heckel, Jr., fulfilled a dream: he sailed alone around the world, not once, but twice! This Old Man of the Sea goes global, describing with a dry wit and a keen eye, the 54 countries and islands he visited, plus the sail to get there. Armchair travelers and sailors alike will be enthralled by the adventures of this Ancient Mariner: from the Killing Fields of Cambodia to the Great Wall of China, from avoiding pirates off Somalia to almost capsizing off Madagascar. An inspiring tale that proves that age is no deterrent to fulfilling your dream!  Available at AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Smashwords.
